I am Zlatimira Colova, a 37-year-old Bulgarian citizen who discovered Volt in July 2017. For people like me, who did not identify with the establishment and the parties currently represented in the national political landscape, this grassroots movement, become a natural home that provided room for initiative and inclusion. Despite living in Brussels, Belgium, I always looked after on what is happening back home in Bulgaria. Coming from Eastern Europe and growing up in a county that experienced political and economic turmoil, faced a very painful transition between communism and capitalism, lost a lot of its young and educated labour power, my dream became to offer my countryman a better choice for citizen engagement and political participation. That is why my personal mission became to introduce and bring Volt to Bulgaria. Zlatimira Colova
